  • The impact of farming on river banks on water quality of the rivers

    Abstract A study was carried out in a strip of a river in the dry and rainy seasons to assess the effect of farming along river banks on the quality of water in rivers. The results showed that there was an increase in the concentration of nitrate in the water downstream in both the rainy and dry seasons. In both rainy and dry seasons, the total nitrogen in the soil was highest (p ...

  • The River Segura: reclaimed water, recovered river

    The Region of Murcia is located in southeast Spain, an area known for structural water stress. The most important water source that runs through the Region is the Segura River, which is the main irrigation water resource. Late last century there was a significant environmental problem in the Segura River caused by an increase of inadequately treated wastewater discharges, in a period of low flow ...

  • River Basin

    A river basin is an extent of land where water from rain and melting snow or ice drains downhill into a body of water, such as a river, lake, reservoir, estuary, wetland, sea or ocean. The river basin includes both the streams and rivers that convey the water as well as the land surfaces from which water drains into those channels, and is separated from adjacent basins by a drainage divide. The ...

  • River Monitoring

    The monitoring of River water has impications not only on the environmental impacts of heavy metals but also upon the quality of drinking water. THis case study covers an analyser installed in a remote location using low voltage power supplies to suppliment the local mains power supply which cannot be relied ...

  • Microbiological water quality of the Nišava River

    Microorganisms are the ideal indicators of the organic pollution of the surface waters because of their ability to promptly respond to environmental changes. Due to poor economic situation and lack of law implementation, most wastewaters in Serbia are released directly into a surface water recipient without any, or a limited, treatment. This practice has created numerous highly polluted ...

  • Water Quality Parameters Along Rivers

    Water samples have been collected from a part of Surma River along different points and analyzed for various water quality parameters during dry and monsoon periods. Effects of industrial wastes, municipal sewage, and agricultural runoff on river water quality have been investigated. The study was conducted within the Chattak to Sunamganj portion of Surma River, which is significant due to the ...

  • Portneuf river basin - USA

    The monitoring program for the Portneuf River Basin enables stakeholders to assess and document the influence of natural and human-caused factors on water quality. The program is a cooperative effort of private industry, educational institutions, scientists, and government agencies at numerous levels (City, County, State, Tribal, and Federal). The following agencies cooperate in the Portneuf ...

  • The Sustainable Use of Water in the Lower Colorado River Basin

    A long history of conflict surrounds the Colorado River. Throughout the first part of this century, disputes generally arose over securing rights to use the river’s water. Later, disputes centered on finding ways of developing and ...

  • Continuous water quality monitoring on Kolubara River

    The first automated station for water quality monitoring located in Beli Brod on the Kolubara river has launched on July 2008. The station was established as the result of RHMSS participation in Twinning project financed by EU, where RHMSS was entrusted with the Component 2 of this project. Installed equipment continually records values of water level, temperature, pH, electroconductivity and ...

  • Application of membrane processes in fractionation of elements in river water

    The influence of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents from one microelectronic industrial zone on element concentrations and partitioning in river water was investigated. The stepwise membrane filtration is used to distinguish different size fractions including large particulate (>18 μm), particulate (0.2–18 μm), colloidal/nanoparticle (10 kDa–0.2 μm) and truly dissolved fractions ...

  • The influence of lagoon on neighboring rivers by water and sediment quality

    Canonical discriminant analysis (CDA) was applied in order to distinguish the water-quality and the sediment-quality parameters from neighboring rivers, and to recognize similarities of water and sediment properties between a lagoon and neighboring rivers. Two set of constructed discriminant functions showed a marked contribution to most of the discriminant variables. In water, the significant ...

  • Treatment of polluted river water by a new constructed wetland

    Abstract: A new constructed wetland was built to purify one polluted river in Taiwan, and this study was conducted to evaluate the treatment efficiency of the wetland. Due to the very limitation of available budget, several water quality items, which were stipulated by Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration for rivers, in the influent and effluent of wetland were analyzed and ...

  • The impact of fluctuation of the Nile River level on water composition

    This paper studies the influence of fluctuation of the Nile River level on water composition. The Nile River could be classified to four periods according to level. The periods are flood, intermediate, drought and intermediate. The present study investigates the biological and chemical analysis of water at all periods of the Nile River. The results show that the algae count ranged from 221 to ...

  • Impact of IT on river modeling

    Background Models of river channels and river flows have been used to good effect for many years. HR Wallingford Group, in the UK, has been building physical models of rivers for nearly 60 years. Some years ago, it was predicted that physical modeling would soon cease to exist, to be entirely replaced by computer models. This has not happened - in fact, the demand for physical models is greater ...

  • Most Endangered Rivers - U.S.

    America’s Most Endangered Rivers report is one of the most effective tools in the environmental movement for publicizing threats to rivers and galvanizing the public to take action. The 2013 report highlights a number of key threats, and shines the spotlight on rivers running dry because of outdated water management, wasteful water use, and persistent drought. ...

  • Water salinity investigation in the Sundarbans rivers in Bangladesh

    Bangladesh, through its complex network of river systems, drains an area of about 1.76 million km2 of the catchments of the Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Meghna, of which only 7.5% lies in Bangladesh. The Sundarbans is situated in the Ganges catchment area, which is known as the single largest mangrove forest and unique ecosystem in the world. It has an area ...

  • Review of spatial variations in water quality in the Gediz River

    The Gediz River is one of the most important and main water source for the Gediz Basin of the Aegean region and Turkey. In this study, 18 water samples were collected from the source to the end of the river. Change in water quality, some trace elements and heavy metal contents of the Gediz River were determined. Analysis of the Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Pb, Cr, Co, Cd and Ni showed that the quantity of Fe ...
